I teach a variety of metalsmithing, wire and beading courses and workshops around the Puget Sound Area in Washington State. All offerings are extended learning for non - credit enrichment classes and in venues that accept everyone with no special enrollment qualifications. There are no prerequisites unless specified or suggested in the class descriptions. As an artist teaching others, I get the chance to impart the joy of creating and to give others the permission to create just for the sake of it. I enjoy watching the process of discovery as students apply techniques and imagine and discuss new possibilities. Although I might protect my own “muse”, my intentions as a teacher are to pass on and help to develop skills by giving full information and techniques freely.

In addition to courses and workshops I am also available for one on one or group study tailored to individual needs. If you are interested in working one on one or in groups of up to 8 please contact me at kristiskitsch@gmail.com or 425-585-0675.
